Talking about Ore and Joanne’s bond, Lorraine quipped: ‘There are three people in this marriage right now!’

Eep. But Ore didn’t take the comment to heart. He actually agreed with Lorraine, before joking that it’s him who’s the third wheel.

He replied: ‘There’s mainly two. I am the one on the outside of it! Portia and Jo get on so well, and that’s something I’ve been really blessed with.

‘I would never want to enter this adventure without Portia being a part of it.’

Aw. Cute, eh? Ore and Portia married last November, and there’s definitely no sign of the Strictly curse coming between them anytime soon.

Portia is in the crowd to support her hubby every week, and she and Ore often double date with Joanne and her boyfriend Joseph Edward-Bader.

Portia’s also happy to let Joanne calm Ore’s nerves as they prepare for their weekly performances. Joanne said: ‘He looks at me like a lost little boy every day,’ before Ore added: ‘Every week I still have the same nerves that I might not get better by Saturday.

‘I had no dance experience except for in the club.’

He also admitted that he was terrified before taking part in his second dance-off over the weekend, against Judge Rinder and his partner Oksana Platero.

Ore said: ‘I’ve never felt so scared, I didn’t talk that much before.’

The judges opted to keep Ore in the competition, and he’s now a semi-finalist alongside Danny Mac, Louise Redknapp and Claudia Fragapane.

Sending you lots of luck, Ore!
